I don't think a stylist should say "You don't need all this length". Excuse me?

the last stylist i went to for a CUT asked me what i wanted her to do to my hair. "do you want me to make it more manageable?"

uh, no. i want you to just cut my hair. i manage it just fine, thank you.

and she insisted on blowing it out first. took her three hours. she gave me a discount because i did warn her. so there's that.

Happily following one curly hair tip to find a suitable stylist, I went into one salon and asked the lady there if the salon had anyone who specialized in cutting curly hair. She gave me a look as if she was naturally supposed to be insulted (I don't find the question insulting at all,) she gave me a very rude look, and said "We all cut all types of hair." So the answer seems, eh, okay fine so what if you do, but the way she said it and the look she gave me screamed cheap-o hair salon with no real experience. I politely said I may be back later and ran.

Ugh, I hate this line. I happen to like my hair long. Reminds me of the stylists in makeover shows, they always chop off long hair and straighten curlies. Haters!! lol

That they all cut curly hair, and don't realise that it has unique requirements screams that they have no clue. The correct answer to that question is, "Oh, you want Stan (or whomever they have who's a genius with curls)!"

Well in all fairness the ladies on those shows rarely have attractive long hair like yours. It's usually stringy or damaged or just doesn't do anything for their face. Not everyone looks good with long hair. Long hair takes time and these are generally women who don't take time on their appearance. As far as vanity is concerned, they need hair that can match their desire not to put in any effort.

Jessiebanana, You'd be surprised how many stylists have actually told me my hair needs to go. Sometimes textured hair may appear stringy or damaged beyond repair when all it needs is a little TLC. My hair wasn't so nice when I first found this site 4 months ago. I had a huge improvement, I just didn't know better. Sometimes people just need a chance

Wow, these stylists are TERRIBLE. It's dreadful to live in a society that doesn't understand curly hair.

I've personally never had any bad experiences but to be fair I've only been to a stylist about 3-4 times since going natural. Note to future stylists - your clients are always sensitive about their hair, you've been warned.

I know they don't mean it as insult but I don't really like it when they say "you have A LOT of hair!" It makes it seem like it's a burden for them to work with (and they don't know how). And my hair was straightened when she said that! -_-

Here's my two cents XD:

"Wow, it's so big..."
"Your hair is so frizzy."
"You need conditioning."

The funniest thing that ever happened to me at a Taiwanese salon (now it's funny, at the time I was mortified) was one time after my first haircut there, they dried my hair as if it were an Asian's = = (basically using the blow-dryer full blast while roughing up my hair with their hands...talk about not knowing anything about curly hair...) I looked like a lion...so then they had to straighten it (duh) to sort it out....they had 3 stylists clamping away at my hair, one on each side and one at the back. I couldn't help but feel mortified for my hair :\

I had one last week tell me how I should talk to hairdressers, as if their egos need tender handling.

So, I'm paying you, but I have to kiss your ***, too?

I hate this. Over-talkative hair stylists, masseuses, nail techs. I'm trying to relax...leave me alone!!

Yes! Yes!

I understand they need to be friendly, but after a few obviously uninterested replies, please --- give it up! A manicurist once told me all about her egg donation process, something I consider very private. Now when I see her around town, all I can think of are her fallopian tubes and an egg dropping down the hatch like in a pinball machine.
